G10 Field Trip to Mt. Takao

The PPL 10 class hiked up Mt. Takao on May 2. The weather was perfect for mountain hiking! Everyone enjoyed the nature and their bento lunches with friends. 5月2日、絶好の山登り日和のお天気の中、10年生が体育の授業で高尾山へ登ってきました! 自然を満喫し、仲間と食べるお弁当は格別でした!

Fire! Fire!

Fire! Fire! We had a fire drill at Columbia today and students evacuated safely and quickly to the field. Teachers and staffs tried the fire extinguisher demonstration.  Students walked through the smoke house to experience evacuation from the smoky building. You can never be too prepared for emergencies!! 今日は避難訓練を行い、全員速やかに落ち着いてグラウンドへの避難を完了しました。消防署のご協力のもと、消火器を使った消火のデモンストレーションやスモークハウスでの煙体験を行いました。視界の悪い煙の中を歩くのはとても難しく、実際の状況を想定した訓練は大変ためになりました。備えあれば患いなし、ですね。
